Jeremy gets rock star re­cep­tion at fes­ti­val

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - News -

JEREMY CORBYN was greeted by crowds of rev­ellers chant­ing his name at Glas­ton­bury Fes­ti­val.

The Labour leader ad­dressed the crowd at the main stage at the 900-acre mu­sic fes­ti­val in Pil­ton, Som­er­set.

Dur­ing his speech, which was watched by tens of thou­sands across the fes­ti­val site and broad­cast live on TV, he called for “a world of hu­man rights, peace, jus­tice and democ­racy”.

He also com­mented on the re­cent elec­tion, which saw Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May’s ma­jor­ity cut in the House of Com­mons, fol­low­ing a vote in which the turnout among young peo­ple was re­ported to have in­creased dra­mat­i­cally.

“The elites got it wrong,” he said.

“The pol­i­tics that got out of the box is not go­ing back in that box”.
